Al Sherman and wife Phyllis started their farm in New Hampshire’s Saco River Valley in 1964, and their daughters continue the family tradition. It's grown to about 60 acres of vegetables with extra room to produce beef and pork. The farmstand specializes in local fruits like blueberries, parsnips, and peaches, but it also produces value-added options like hand-made pies, apple cider, and brownies. Fresh-cut flowers are popular, and around Christmas, the farm stocks trees and wreaths. In the fall, there is an elaborate 10-acre corn maze, which, in 2011, resembled a hockey player hoisting the Stanley Cup.
The Shermans house more than just a farmstand. They also sells prepared foods like lasagna, Shepherd’s pie, and hamburger meat with pasta, but don’t have room for any seats. Grab and go.
